Barcelona Wine Bar's Sherry-Braised Short Ribs with Autumn Vegetables Yesterday was sweatshirt weather, sunny but crisp, and the night was cool enough to have a fire in the fireplace. Today was bright and warm. In other words, a gorgeous fall weekend. To add to a glorious weekend, my blog crossed 100,000 visits today with over 140,000 page visits. I felt inspired to try out a wonderful, hearty dish of braised short ribs with roasted autumn vegetables from my friend Andy's cookbook, the Barcelona Cookbook. If you'd like to find out about or buy this wonderful cookbook, more information can be found at the book's website or Amazon. Before you read on, here's the bottom line on this dish: it rocks.

This recipe has four parts. 1) I cut the vegetables, but I didn't measure the oil. Brine Vegetables Braising

Homemade Crispy Potato Tots (Tater Tots) Homemade Crispy Potato Tots (Tater Tots) I went to a Sonic Drive In for the first time a few weeks ago and was surprised to see that they served tater tots. I just had to order some, and believe me I enjoyed every last tot. I knew then and there that I needed to make a homemade version in my own kitchen. So when the recent issue of Cook’s Country arrived in the mail, this recipe was the first one I bookmarked. Serve for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even an afternoon snack. I added a dash of cayenne pepper because I like things spicy, but feel free to leave it out. Crunchy on the outside, warm and fluffy on the inside. Ingredients: 1 cup water 2 1/4 teaspoons salt 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) 4 cups peanut oil or vegetable oil Directions: In a small bowl, whisk water and salt together until salt dissolves.

Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets Chunks of all white meat chicken breasts coated in breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese then baked until golden. An easy chicken recipe your whole family will love. What can be more kid friendly than chicken nuggets, even the pickiest kids like them. Serve them with ketchup, bbq sauce or whatever you like to dip your nuggets into. Kids love finger foods or anything you can eat with toothpicks so when my daughter was young I would make her a dish of bite sized goodies she liked such as tomatoes, olives, pasta, etc. and served them with toothpicks and she always cleaned her plate! Once I'm in breading mode I usually make breaded zucchini sticks as well and bake them all at the same time along with some pasta and a salad for a complete meal. Double these for more or make half for less servings. Ingredients: Preheat oven to 425°. Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in another.

Fried Dough Mozzarella Bites - The Food in my Beard - StumbleUpon These weren't as crazy amazing(cramazing?) as they look and sound, but they were still very good. They definitely need a few tweaks though to become a perfect recipe. The main issue which I knew might be a problem from the start is that the cheese explodes out of the dough well before the dough is finished cooking. Little Cubes of mozzarella. I just used store bought pizza dough to wrap the cheese in. Right away I dunked them into a bowl of flour so they wouldn't be sticky. You can already see the cheese explosions. Still, really fun and really tasty. I'm gonna revisit this idea, it might not be for awhile, but it's gonna happen. 7 Crock Pot Recipes That Rock Crock pot, slow cooker, call it what you will, but this convenient kitchen appliance is hotter than ever.

Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes A couple weeks ago Giz over at Equal Opportunity Kitchen posted a recipe for Cauliflower Pancakes. They sounded & looked wonderful to me so the head of yellow cauliflower in our fridge was quickly marked for pancakes. When I mentioned them in my weekly menu Dawn at Vanilla Sugar said she hoped there would be cheese in them. Well that was like a light bulb going on over my head. Of course there would be cheese in them! Cheese & cayenne! These were such a simple side dish & a great use for cauliflower (it seems we always end up roasting it). I liked them with a little sour cream to dip them in while Matt preferred them with a little more cheese grated over the top.
